This center is located in the middle of a large ger district (i.e. a residential area composed of gers and shanty's which are typical here).
We help one of the members here get the job as manager of this childrens center (Naraa) and she invited us to come and help get the flower beds ready and seeds planted. Naraa recently graduated from college here in what we would referr to as one of the Social Sciences. The lady who owns the center walked into our office one day and told us she was looking for a manager for a children's center. We immediately thought of Naraa.
And we had no sooner mentioned her name than she also came walking into our office! The lady hired Naraa on the spot!
Two senior couples along with one set of young missionaries went to help out.
We had a good time and accomplished a lot, despite an obnoxious wind blowing part of the time.
We especially liked all of the fun paintings on the walls in the compound!
Had to throw in this last picture. This is a section of wall along the back of the complound. It is fairly typical here to see a wide mix of fence types. Sometimes they just use whatever they have to get the job done!
